Multi-Effects Pedals

Multi-effects pedals are capable of housing tons of awesome sonic capabilities in an incredibly compact unit. The power encompassed in such a tight space is invaluable for musicians of all styles and calibers. Many guitar players can benefit from having all the potential options afforded by a multi-effects pedal, at their feet.

Multi-effects pedals come in a few different formats. Mostly you'll find them as actual pedals, flat on the floor with a number of buttons, knobs, and LEDs. More advanced multi-effects pedals aren't exactly pedals, but function similarly, being rack mounted units controlled by a foot switch. Even the most "basic" multi-effects pedals include multiple types of amp models, distortion and overdrive, delays, reverbs, modulation, and much, much more.

Popular Multi-Effects Pedals

There are certainly less multi-effects pedal options than there are stomp boxes, so the decision as to which you may want could be a bit more straightforward. However, the price is a big differentiator between multi-effects pedals. If you want a detailed analysis of the features of different major brands and their multi-effects pedals, check out our Multi-Effects Pedals Buyers' Guide.

Here are some of the best multi-effects pedals on the market:

Boss GT-1: The GT-1 is a simple, affordable unit, great for people looking for their first multi-effects pedal. Powered by a Boss GT series engine, this multi-effects pedal gives you plenty of options to find your sound. The three footswitches are smartly designed to provide patch selection, tuner access, looper control, and more in a comfortably sized design. You can even download pro patches for free at Boss Tone Central.

Boss GT-1000: If you want to step it up a few notches to a pro-level multi-effects pedal, then feast your eyes on the Boss GT-1000. Driven by Boss AIRD (Augmented Impulse Response Dynamics) technology, the Boss GT-1000 sports amp model categories like transparent, natural, boutique, and juggernaut, and MDP amp categories like x-crunch, x-hi gain, and x-drive bass. In addition, there are many cabinet models to choose from, as well as a range of dynamic and condenser mics with distance adjust.

Hotone Ampero: If you want to maximize bang for your buck, the Hotone Ampero deserves some serious consideration. At an incredibly modest price point, the Ampero packs all the options you want into a sleek-sized multi-effects pedal. Using 24-bit signal processing and up to 120dB S/N ratio, the powerfully upgraded dual DSP-powered platform encompassing CDCM HD (Comprehensive Dynamic Circuit Modeling High Definition) and F.I.R.E. (Field Impulse Response Enhancement) guarantees outstanding sonic competence. You get a lot of serious effects with the Ampero, including 64 amp models, 60 cab models, 100+ legendary pedal sounds, and mic type/position simulations. It also includes 50+ original Hotone effects, such as drive, filter, modulation, delay, and reverb.

Line 6 Helix: The Helix comes in a full-size Floorboard model and as a rack unit with a foot controller. It's also available in an LT model, an HX, and an HX Stomp. The differences are in size and thus the amount of effects options each has, but across all, the fluid sound and technological efficiency remains. Even the smaller units have loads of awesome models and effects for you to experiment with. When it comes to Line 6, the multi-effects originators, you can't go wrong.
